News Comments > Starbound Patch "Hopefully" Wipes Out Wipes

Early access game, where patch formats can still change. It's still late-alpha/beta quality and if you don't expect things to earth-shatteringly change you shouldn't buy it this early.

Yeah, the fact that the left and Democrats have been far more vocal on this issue for a much longer time before House Republicans suddenly thought privacy rights were cool because, you know, Obama.

The Patriot Act and FISA only got extended, not expanded, under Obama - with the Republicans' blessing from the House and Senate (Democrats made the majority of no votes in both houses).

I'll admit, Rand Paul has been pretty consisently against it, but let's not lump the entire left with Obama on this issue. The House vote was just another political sideshow. That's what the House does. Let's wait until they do something substantive before we start calling them heroes, k?

You mean the democrats who were so vocal over it that they gave overwhelming support of it?

And perhaps I should have used "illegally expanded outside the scope of their mandate under Obama." After all if there's no oversight, and it does happen on that presidents watch, it is that presidents problem.

And yep Rand Paul has been pretty consistently against it, but let's be realistic. Most of the left have been pretty a-okay with it, especially under Obama's watch. It gets worse with the media who are licking his hands like a lapdog, on issue after issue. And if you don't think so, you can take that as an "outside observer into american politics." Even in el-liberal Canada our previous Prime minster(liberal) couldn't get the media on his side during the massive fraud scheme, and that investigation is still going on to this day, along with investigations, charges and people still being locked up in jail over it. Been almost 10 years now they've been going after people. But it was running from '94-'04.

No... but relocating 10-15 people from a division certainly IS some sort of writing on the wall. Especially where it's described as a "major portion" of the team. That seems pretty indicative of a coming office shutdown.
Blizz is pretty well known to like having everything within reach of their irvine offices, if the guy didn't know that going in he knew less of what goes on in his own backyard than people halfway across the country.

Let me see if I get this right. Both sides agreed to it, both said it was necessary at the time. American people mostly agreed to it on a limited basis. New government comes to power, expands it, but it's all the previous administrations fault for the current one using it, abusing it, and expanding it. So, the one half of the isle says enough...and left-leaners are up in arms over it...saying it's all their fault.

I miss anything?

that's called seeing the writing on the wall
Hardly. If it's California it's more of a case of "I don't want to drive/move/etc, out of the area I'm in." One person is "not writing on the wall." Especially not one person from an acquired division, who was probably in a bad mood to begin with over having been bought out.

[edit] This game looks terrible. What's with the effects overload?

It is pretty damn terrible at least imo, I didn't even make it out of the newbie zone in the last two stress test weekends. It just didn't feel right, like the movement or feel of the world was off. Maybe it was the uncanny valley kicking in. And the effects? Oooh shiny.

Even worse than the anti-vaccination crazies is the the horrible overperscription of antibiotics nearly everywhere in the world.
What I found interesting in the article was the comments, especially the "but x" because "I believe y" and all the rest. I'm expecting the next bug to smash us in the face to be a flu variant, not antibiotic resistant. Here in Canada we've had a nasty flu season, and 90% of the one admitted to hospitals are for the swine flu instead of regular flu.

I played on Area 52 -- the issue there was the population was 9 to 1 Horde, fortunately I was Horde. Wonder if that is still the case...
Quite a few servers like that going by wowprogress. Malganis is the same way which is where I was, it's something like 9.9999:1 Horde. I actually think there's enough alliance on there they could form a 10 man raiding guild, but that's about it.

Yeah I pretty much got a "buy now or fuck you forever." Not exactly a sound plan by any stretch, and oddly he seems to be operating under the "Canadian Business plan." Which is "fuck you, I'll charge whatever the hell I want, keep it there, and treat you like shit--if you don't buy." Haven't gotten to the treat you like shit part yet, but I have a feeling it's coming.

Apparently desktops don't exist anymore and Crossfire is the only game that plays worth a shit on laptops?

Or... it's South Korea.
Asking a few friends that I game with over in S.Korea(they're born, raised and live west side--and all that) on it, it seems that it's more of a thing with netcafe kids, and highschoolers than anyone else. Though there is a following among the salerymen(30-45) group as well. I guess someone found a market, exploited it, and made an assload of money.

My guess would be the information is taken from the Blizzard store and the sales of all the over-priced, in-game merchandise. Given how expensive the average item is, it likely has a lot less payees than those who use a more modest and legit ftp system.
If that's true then blizz is easily raking in 800-1.2B+/yearly when you toss in the store stuff.

Has anyone calculated the cost of starting this game from scratch, 1 yr sub, base game, all expansions?
Well they just had a "all exp except MoP" for $9 during the holidays. And it looks like that's the standard ed. now which is going for $19+39 for MoP. MoP was down to $14 I think it was, plus $179/yr if you're paying monthly.

Damn that Blizzard, they really need to pay attention to the boot market.
Yeah well I've only got myself to blame...for posting with 3 hours of sleep. Blizz not paying attention to the boot market is to blame damn it!

And decided to resub at least for 3 months to see how the game has changed. Though I think I'm going to transfer at least my mage off my old server that I was playing on, it's got a 0.3-.5:1 A/H ratio now, and when I was playing it was 1:.9 or 1:1.2. Back at release it was an ultra high pop server and one of the first servers to get a split.

Nope, but if you toss it into google, then wait for the page to load and hit translate you'll get a close approximation.

Really? You can see them managing to scrap something together out of the 300+ books that are out. Well I suppose, but if they can't scrape something out of Thrawn and Daala, they've either got the laziest writers, or the poorest.

Oh and blue, if you're using Win7 or 8 I'd recommend trying shark007's codec pack
